We’ve just opened up signups to compete at this at bbb.gd/wat

See you guys in June!


Does the BBB team have any plans for broadcasting events? I know a lot of people would be interested in following but can’t make the trip, and it would be great for showing off all the excellent builds.


A good question! Most of our venues (being outdoors) aren’t well suited to streaming and we have our hands pretty full running the events.

Buuuut we will always stream our two major beetle events with help from amazing streamboss Steven - brawl and champs in Feb and Oct each year - you can see past streams here.

We will always post all fights from every event to our youtube :slight_smile:

All fights from yesterday! We’ve got a new recording system that auto records the fights and now captures the audio from the bots, the arena, commentary and crowd ! :slight_smile: All the fights are timestamped.
